I believe Mom told me that they had ten children and I should have list somewhere which I need to post here. He was born in Alabma near the Warrior river and lived with the Choctaw Indians a number of years or maybe it was the Cherokees and he could speak their language. I believe he had 17 siblings!

Going to try to add his children. I do not know where they are all buried so cannot add them that way:
